On Tuesday the Virginia Police Benevolent Association (PBA) endorsed John Adams, the Republican candidate for Attorney General.

In 2013 they endorsed current Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, who is running for reelection against Adams.

Saying “public safety will be my top priority as attorney general,” Adams accepted the endorsement of the organization composed of more than 4,700 law enforcement officers employed by federal, state, county, and municipal governments

Writing on Facebook, Adams noted:

“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Virginia Police Benevolent Association, which is composed of more than 4,700 law enforcement officers across the Commonwealth. As attorney general, I will take action to ensure that our law enforcement community has the resources they need to keep Virginia’s children and communities safe.”

Explaining why the VPBA endorsed Adams, their president Joseph Woloszyn commented:

“We need an attorney general who will take public safety seriously and be a steadfast partner with our members – the thousands of police officers who put their lives on the line each day to keep Virginia safe. That is why we are supporting John Adams this year. John’s background in public service as a Naval officer and federal prosecutor has prepared him to effectively lead on public safety from the attorney general’s office. We look forward to working closely with him as our next attorney general.”

Election day is November 7, 2017.
